    v27 v28  
    5656* **Compiler Determinism**: GHC 8.0.2 is the first release of GHC which produces deterministic interface files. This helps consumers like `nix` and caching build systems, and presents new opportunities for compile-time improvements.
    5757
    58 * **Hadrian**: 8.2 will hopefully be the first release to ship with Hadrian, our new Shake-based build system developed by Andrey Mokhov and his collaborators. This new build system is significantly more maintainable than our aging `make`-based system, will lead to improved compilation times on some platforms, and is better equipped to incorporate features like build artifact caching. If you’re interested in helping out, we have a list of issues that are blocking the merge into GHC: [[https://github.com/snowleopard/hadrian/issues/239]].
